Hi Don,

Yes, I remember the airline and date of my flight to Cuba. In
fact, below is a copy of the original e-mail about this UFO
encounter that I sent to the canufo List shortly after I
returned to Canada.

This UFO encounter, together with the UFO related article that
appeared in 'The New York Times' stating that the Federal
Government, via the National Security Act, was trying to prevent
the screening of a film scheduled to be shown in a cinema in
lower Manhatten on September 12, 2001, are two that still
fascinate me but remain unresolved.

The film's title, by the way, was 'Alien Technology'. It had
disturbing testimonies about UFOs by "Pentagon insiders". This
film never got to be shown (also, I never got either of my two
paid DVD copies of this film from it's producer) because of the
attacks on the WTC and the Pentagon one day after the article
was published in the newspaper. Coincidence or further evidence
of the ongoing UFO cover-up?

Subject: UFO Seen By Pilots Over Cuba?

Hi everyone.

I just got back from Cuba.

Reading Kristoffer Jeppesen post of a UFO seen by pilots over
Saskatchewan, I thought I would share what may turn out to be a
UFO encountered by the pilots of a Canadian charter airplane I
was a passenger on.

As our Airbus 320 Skyservice plane (flight SV524) was making a
nighttime approach to the airport near Cayo Coco, Cuba, we were
startled when we heard the engines get louder and felt pushed
down into our seats. This was shortly followed by a near
weightlessness sensation. The captain announced that his
instruments detected a false signal of another aircraft in the
area and in the interest of safety he took evasive actions. This
was the reason for what we felt.

My final destination was the next airport near Manzanillo, Cuba,
but all the passengers were asked to disembark at Cayo Coco so
the aircraft could be cleaned for new passengers. I spoke with a
few of these passengers who said they saw our plane "go around"
after seeing a single red light fly low over the airport as we
were coming to land. They thought it may have been a small plane
but could not explain why only a red light was observed. Apart
from our plane, there were no others on the ground at that
airport that night.

Getting back in the plane, I told the flight attendant standing
by the door next to the cockpit about the red light seen by
passengers at the airport (in a loud enough voice so the pilots
could hear too who turned their heads in my direction). She
suggested it may have been a UFO and said she would find out for
me. I never heard back from her. I later told the passengers
seating next me who experienced what I did and they thought they
would be more comfortable with the explanation of a near
collision with a UFO than the thought of flying in an airplane
with faulty instruments.

Is there anyway of finding out what really happened during that
aborted night landing on December 14?
